SOURCE: My wiper blades stop working.

This sounds like the wiper motor. The brushes/commutators in the motor are probably fouling up. At high speed more current is sent to the motor so it works. If you replace the wiper motor this should solved the problem.
For the wiper pump check the fuse.
Then check to see if the fluid tube is clear and not plugged.
Finally check/clean electrical contacts on pump motor and if you can heard the wiper pump motor running when activated. If not replace pump motor. (they do wear out)

These parts can be gotten at auto recyclers also.

SOURCE: winshield wiper works on high

This solution applies specifically to a 91 Ranger with delay wipers, but may apply to other years as well:

There is a "cold solder" joint on the wiper control module that should be investigated whenever intermittent wiper issues crop up. I dont have the ability to post a schematic, but it is one of the leads that come off of the main terminal, and is fairly large. The solder around the lead will look dull and will most likely show physical separation from the circuit board itself. Re-solder with a good hot iron and it may well cure what ails ya. Takes 30-45 minutes, depending on how adept you are at worming your way under the dash to retrieve the module. It's to the left of the ashtray about 6 inches.

How do I find out if the wipers on my 2006 H3 Hummeris on a relay?


The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
• Windshield wiper/washer switch
• Body control module (BCM)
• Wiper micro relay
• Wiper 2 relay
• Wiper diode
• Windshield wiper motor
• Windshield washer pump
• Windshield washer nozzles
• Windshield washer solvent container
• Windshield wiper arm and blade assemblies
• Windshield wiper transmission
• WIP/WASH 10A fuse
• WIPER 25A fuse

Wiper/Washer System Description
The body control module (BCM) controls wiper motor low speed operation. The washer pump and high speed operation are controlled directly by the wiper/washer switch. The windshield wiper/washer switch supplies voltage on the signal circuits to the BCM for windshield wiper/washer operation. When WASH, MIST, DELAY, LOW, or HIGH is detected, the BCM energizes the wiper micro relay by suppling voltage to the relay coil. This allows battery voltage from the WIPER fuse to flow through the relay switched input then through the contacts and out the relay switched output to the wiper 2 relay switch contacts. Since the wiper 2 relay switch contacts are normally closed to the low speed circuit of the windshield wiper motor, the motor will operate at low speed.

Low Speed Operation
When the wiper switch is in the Low position, voltage is supplied through an internal resistor to the signal circuit. The body control module (BCM) monitors the windshield wiper switch signal 1 circuit, and energizes the wiper micro relay which will operate the windshield wiper motor. The wiper motor will operate at low speed, since the wiper 2 relay is de-energized. Low speed can also be commanded with a scan tool, by commanding Wiper Relay Cmd. ON and OFF. Refer to Scan Tool Output Controls .
High Speed Operation
In the High position, the windshield wiper/washer switch supplies voltage to both the wiper micro relay and wiper 2 relay coils. This energizes both relays and allows battery voltage from the wiper micro relay switched output to the switched input of the wiper 2 relay through its contacts and out the switched output of the wiper 2 relay to the high speed circuit of the windshield wiper motor. The windshield wiper motor will operate at high speed. During high speed wiper motor operation the wiper switch signal circuit is at the low speed signal voltage, and the body control module (BCM) supplies redundant voltage to the wiper relay via the wiper diode.

Looking for the fuse for the wiper motor 2008 chevy impala


WPR fuse 25amp under hood fuse box .
Wiper/Washer System Components
The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
• Windshield wiper/washer switch
• Body control module (BCM)
• Wiper PCB relay
• Wiper high PCB relay
• Windshield wiper motor
• Windshield washer fluid pump
• Windshield washer fluid level switch
• WPR fuse 25 A
• WSW fuse 10 A
This is more then likely not a fuse issue !!!!!!!
Low Speed Operation
When the wiper switch is in the low speed position, ground is applied through the switch internal resistor and the wiper switch low signal circuit to the body control module (BCM). In response to this signal, the BCM energizes the WIPER PCB relay by applying battery voltage through the wiper relay control circuit to the coil side of the relay. This allows battery positive voltage from the WPR fuse to flow through the switch input side of the WIPER PCB relay and out to the switch input side of the WIPER HIGH PCB relay. Since the wiper high relay is de-energized and its switch contacts are normally closed to the low speed control circuit of the windshield wiper motor, the motor will operate at low speed.
Wiper motor low speed operation and the wiper PCB relay can also be commanded ON/OFF by using a scan tool. Refer to Control Module References.
The PCB relays mentioned above are soldered right into the circuit board inside the fuse/relay block under the hood . There are alot of reasons for the wipers not to work ! The fuse could be blown but fuse's don't just blow for no good reason , short to ground , low resistance high current flow etc.... Intermittant !

Power and Grounds
With the ignition in the ON position, accessory voltage is supplied through the 25A WPR fuse to the WIPER PCB relay, the WIPER HIGH PCB relay and the WS WASH PCB relay that are all located in the underhood fuse block. Refer to Wiper/Washer Schematics.
G200 provides ground for the windshield wiper motor and the WIPER PCB relay. G100 provides ground for the windshield washer fluid pump and the windshield washer fluid level switch.

I have a 2008 GMC Acadia. The wipers stopped working the other day and the high beams won't turn on either. I checked the fuses under the hood and also tried swapping the relay with another one.


Both headlamps an wipers are controlled by the BCM - body control module ! There is a lot involved in turning on the headlamps an wipers , here is GM factory service repair manual description .
Low Speed Operation
When the wiper switch is in the low speed position, ground is applied through a resistor internal to the switch and the wiper switch low signal circuit to the body control module (BCM). In response to this signal, the BCM energizes the WPR relay by applying battery voltage through the wiper relay control circuit to the coil side of the relay. This allows battery positive voltage from the WPR fuse to flow through the switch input side of the WPR relay and out to the switch input side of the WPR HI relay. Since the wiper high relay is de-energized and its switch contacts are normally closed to the low speed control circuit of the windshield wiper motor, the motor will operate at low speed.
Wiper motor low speed operation and the WPR relay can also be commanded ON/OFF by using a scan tool. Refer to Control Module References.
There could be DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM .
DTC B3715 DTC B3873 DTC B3875 DTC B3922
Your best option would be to have it checked out by a qualified repair shop . Hooking up a diagnostic scan tool to check inputs an outputs of the BCM is the best way to find the problem . Could be the switches (no input to BCM) The BCM could be at fault . There are relays involved in both the headlamps an wipers , couldn't be three relays bad at the same time .

High Speed Operation When the wiper switch is in the high speed position, ground is applied through the windshield wiper switch high signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) indicating the wiper high speed request. In response to this signal, the BCM then energizes the wiper PCB relay, as stated above, and the wiper high PCB relay by applying ground through the control circuit to the coil side of the relay. With the wiper high relay energized and its switch contacts closed to the high speed control circuit of the wiper motor, the motor will operate at high speed.
Wiper motor high speed operation and the wiper high speed PCB relay can also be commanded ON/OFF by using a scan tool. Refer to Control Module References.

Why don't windshield wipers with rainsense work?


No wipers at all , hi , low , delayed ? You really need a factory scan tool to diagnose this problem , there is a lot involved ! The switch , BCM , wiper relay , an wiper hi relay ! With a scan tool you would be able to access data parameters in the BCM - body control module . When you turn the switch to turn on the wipers , that's an input to the BCM , the BCM then energizes the proper relay in the under hood relay box . Turning on the wipers ! Plus there could be trouble codes stored in the BCM pointing to a problem .
Low Speed Operation
When the wiper switch is in the low speed position, ground is applied through a resistor internal to the switch and the wiper switch low signal circuit to the body control module (BCM). In response to this signal, the BCM energizes the WPR relay by applying battery voltage through the wiper relay control circuit to the coil side of the relay. This allows battery positive voltage from the WPR fuse to flow through the switch input side of the WPR relay and out to the switch input side of the WPR HI relay. Since the wiper high relay is de-energized and its switch contacts are normally closed to the low speed control circuit of the windshield wiper motor, the motor will operate at low speed.
Wiper motor low speed operation and the WPR relay can also be commanded ON/OFF by using a scan tool. Refer to Scan Tool Output

Usually when the delay function fails, the problem is in the circuit board module on the wiper motor.
You would need to check the circuit with a meter, the module may be available without buying a wiper motor.

Operation

Specific to:
Ford Taurus 2008-2009
Mercury Sable 2008-2009
The Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor is a permanent magnet output coil device that monitors the speed and position of the crankshaft. A reluctor is attached directly to the crankshaft, and is used to generate a constant signal as it passes the CKP sensor magnetic coil. The CKP Sensor utilizes system voltage (12 volts DC), or reference voltage (5 volts DC) to generate a digital output signal to the PCM that is based upon a 0.5 volt AC reference. The alternating magnetic field is used by the sensor output electronics to produce a digital pulse. The CKP sensor returns a digital ON/OFF signal pulse during each revolution of the crankshaft, with a momentary signal interrupt for the top dead center (TDC) position of the #1 cylinder. The Pulse Width Modulation pattern is used by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to calculate ignition timing, fuel injector timing, misfire diagnostics, and the tachometer display
